UFC On FOX 8 Prelims: Julie Kedzie Anxious To Compete Inside Octagon

UFC On FOX 8 Prelims: Julie Kedzie Anxious To Compete Inside Octagon

Julie Kedzie has turned her MMA career into one that will keep her in the sport long after she retires.

For now, though, Kedzie is still an active member of the division, and will look to make a statement this Saturday when she faces Germaine de Randamie at UFC on FOX 8.

Kedzie (16-11) is on a two-fight losing skid, suffering tough losses to Miesha Tate and Alexis Davis. As a member of the Jackson-Winkeljohn gym, she also serves on the Invicta FC announce team.

“I’m 32 years old. I don’t have that many years left. I need to be fighting consistently. I need to be getting as many fights as I can, and winning them. I need to be cementing my legacy,” said Kedzie, during a recent interview with Bloody Elbow. “I’m Jones’ing to get out there and hit someone in the face. I want to show everyone what I’m made of. I’m lucky enough to be doing this in the UFC, and I think that’s pretty cool.”

Kedzie added that she knows “what it’s like to be at the lowest of low……Now, I’m ready to be at the highest of high.”

“I’m ready to take the belt,” she added. “I’ve put my time in. I don’t take a single second for granted.”

A win this weekend could vault Kedzie into a possible title-contending match in the near future, as the division remains a muddy mess behind champion Ronda Rousey.
